Ya'll know I'm a coffee
I love to find and experience new coffees whenever I can! Recently, I had the great pleasure of finding Blanchard's Coffee.
Blanchard's Coffee is wonderful. They demand freshness and roast their beans daily. Roasting in small batches, they measure freshness in days, not weeks or months!
Blanchard's Coffee company is an independent, family-owned coffee roastery in Richmond, VA. We roast almost daily and have been since 2004. Below you'll find a list of the folks who serve up our coffee. We also ship just about anywhere, so our online shop should be your next destination. Drink up, bee buzzed.
I was blessed to receive two bags of fresh ground coffee: Fair Trade Organic, Ethiopian Harrar.
Everything you love about trail mix, now in liquid form! A smooth, balanced coffee with notes of dried cherries, milk chocolate, ripe blueberries, and just a touch of salt. A discerning palate might also pick up some red hot cinnamon hidden away.
and Swiss Water Processed Brazilian Decaf.
Decaffeinated by a mysterious process involving reverse osmosis and other stuff we don't really understand. The end result iis one of the purer-tasting decafs you'll have this lifetime. Drink up, guiltlessly!
Very different coffees! The Ethiopian Harrar is richly textured with flavour. The notes of chocolate and blueberry are deep and true. Thoroughly enjoyable and absolutely PERFECT for cooler weather! If you like to camp out -- this is a great "wake me up" coffee!
For softer notes and a quiet evening, I love the Swiss Water Processed Brazilian Decaf. This is a milder roast, a hint of chocolate, and decaf for de-stressing! This is such a lovely mild coffee and absolutely no bitterness at all.
Blanchard's Coffee offers so much: Brasilian Cerrado, Indian Monsooned Malabar, Espresso Blend, Metroplex, Swiss Water Processed Peruvian Decaf, and more! There is a coffee for every taste.
Blanchard's Coffee surprised me. It really did. I knew that I'd get good coffee -- but I didn't expect to receive such amazingly GREAT coffee! It's obvious that this company takes great pride in their product and in their service. The packaging alone suggests they put great thought in to keeping the coffee as fresh as possible.
The taste -- how do you describe perfection? Every single note is brilliant. No harshness, no bitterness, no after-tastes. Each cup is enjoyable from start to finish.
Blanchard's Coffee also makes seriously delicious iced coffee. I've made it that way several times now. The sugar and cream does not in any way dilute or diminish the flavour of the coffee itself. Seriously... who needs an expensive coffee shop?
